Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson - In Bruges) is a small-town cop with a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humour, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes, and absolutely no interest whatsoever in the international cocaine-smuggling ring that has brought FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle, the Ocean’s trilogy) to his door. However, when his enthusiastic new partner disappears, his favourite hooker attempts to blackmail him and the drug-traffickers themselves try to buy him off, Sergeant Boyle finally realises that he needs to take matters into his own hands.

Ordered The Guard as was recommended, thought we was in for watching a film with good comedy. However although a good story line, I did not find it funny in the slightest. My partner enjoyed it but overall I'm a little disappointed.
The Guard is excellent from start to finish. The characters were well put together and Brendan Gleason is magnificent as the Guard.
The Guard stars Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle in an odd couple movie. It is tremendously funny and features a strong central performance by Gleeson. If you liked In Bruges you will almost definitely love this movie.
